IT IS A SAD DAY
It is a sad day for the US constitution when one of the biggest human rights, the right to assure your own health and well being, is taken away from you.
It is a sad day for Patriots.
PelosiCare just passed in Congress. It will probably pass in Senate. And Obama, the most *Wild Card* and least understood president of all times (by his own choice by NOT disclosing ANY documents about his past), is chomping at the bit to sign it in law quickly, by the end of this year.
WHY IS IT A SAD DAY
Why is it a sad day. And, being a patriot you know it. How do you know it? Have you heard of the V.A.? Veterans Administration? I hear a lot of patriots who are quite unhappy with it. Vietnam Veterans, Iraq Veterans. V.A. as a government administration, has it's own rules and regulations. You can only go to this V.A. hospital. You can not go to any other hospital. You MUST go for an annual exam, otherwise they kick you "off their list". Maybe you were in Vietnam, fighting for "democracy" and "liberty". And what do you get now through the V.A. - a mediocre government handout. A mediocre level of care, and severely limited choice of doctors. Probably severely limited choice of medical procedures as well. Well but at least the government is "taking care of you".
BUT WAIT, MAYBE YOU LIKE THE GOVERNMENT TAKING CARE OF YOU?
Well as long as you are okay with relying on the government, you needn't complain. As long as you feel the government choice of doctors and hospitals is better than your own, you needn't complain. Either you haven't been sick much, or you like what the government is doing through other "services" such as IRS, Medicare, Homeland Security.
WHAT IF IRS AND MEDICARE HAD A BABY
In fact, I saw yesterday Rep. Issa comparing the new PelosiCare Bill as what would come out if "IRS and Medicare had a baby". What an ugly image!
THIS IS WHAT PELOSICARE WILL LOOK LIKE IN A COUPLE YEARS
How do you feel as a patriot being forced to purchase your own healthcare (expensive!) until it ruins you financially?
And then when you are financially ruined, how do you feel about asking (begging?) the government for subsidies to your forced healthcare monthly premium?
Are you a wealthy Patriot? How do you feel being taxed an extra 5% to finance this government monstrosity of PelosiCare? This will bring your taxes to 45%, maybe over 50%. I'm assuming states will increase their taxes as well. You, as a wealthy patriot, will be taxed the most. You will be taxed more than you would be taxed in all other developed countries in the world. So much for the Land of the Free. So much for looking forward to making it in the U.S. of A.
Just wait and see. Maybe you really need to get sick a few years from now and need to get in a six months waiting list for a MRI or colonoscopy like the Canadians (especially the elderly Canadians) to understand what kind of "care" your favorite congressmen have in mind for you.
MAYBE YOU DON'T NEED TO LOOK FAR TO SEE YOU'VE BEEN SCAMMED
Maybe you just don't need to wait that long. Maybe you just need to see what other details Pelosi and company have sneaked into the bill in the last minute. It's a 1900 pages long document. A document messing with you, Dear Patriot and Freedom Seeker.
I am losing hope in this matter. The only way out of this mess I see is to repeal this law ASAP especially next year when many Democrats are kicked out of Congress for the work they did against the American people's liberties. Or to replace the Congress altogether with a constitutional entity keeping their hands off personal liberties that are guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.
Patriots comment below if you have any other hopeful way out of this mess.
